After they lose to the Pens in back to back Winter Classics and Edzo forsakes them by openly rooting for the Pens and calling out the Hawks for subtle interference.

We would use a guy like that on this team


#2565628 Time for Teemu?

I don't see why one would think this guy would get traded... I'd say there is about a 0.01% chance he gets traded. Why would Holland trade away the player with two of the main attributes he's been looking for in a player in the past decade... Right-handed / Sniper. The kid is here to stay, he will be fine, he will work out the kinks in his game down in Grand Rapids, and he will come back hungrier, stronger, and a much better all around player...




#2564261 Wings great Gordie Howe resting after 'serious stroke'

Posted by LeftWinger on 18 January 2015 - 06:41 PM

This is pretty sad.....

 

 

....pretty sad that Gordie had to go to a 3rd world country to have a life saving procedure done that this country, supposedly the greatest country on earth REFUSES to ok throught the FDA! Really America?f****** Tijuana, Mexico? Of course I could imagine the price you'd have to pay in America to have this procedure done if it ever got the ok to go forward with it.  Obama and his cronies would have their hands all over it.  Of course, they don't make as much money CURING these things as they do "TREATING" them...

 

...a story like this makes me happy for the patient, but pissess me the f*** off knowing that the cures are out there, yet the NWO just allows people to become debt slaves to medical bills and just die off in obvious population control attemtps.  "They" don't want us living until we are 100, "they" want us dead before or soon after you retire and stop giving them you income taxes...

#2565429 New Zealand and South African Hockey?

Posted by kiwi wingnut on 21 January 2015 - 01:19 PM

You've probably not heard of our hockey down here because we have maybe 1500 players countrywide, though it is one of the fastest growing sports. The haka itself is a traditional war challenge, performed by the Maori, our indigenous people. We're pretty proud of our culture hence its incorporation into the sporting arena. I was privileged enough to perform the haka when I played for the NZ lacrosse team at the World Cup in Canada 2006. (Another minority sport with about 150 senior players in total!). There's the occasional uproar here about the overuse of the haka, but I reckon it's pretty cool, shows off our little country and gets people like yourselves who wouldn't otherwise know who we are talking about us!


#2565431 Pittsburgh/Philly might be the best rivalry in the game now

Posted by frankgrimes on 21 January 2015 - 01:31 PM

I actually read something on Twitter today or last night (from a media guy) that said something like "I don't think there is really much hatred there like there used to be, but I think the guys feel like they still have to entertain" - referring to the craziness of the PIT v PHI game.  I think there is some truth to that, but I'm also pretty sure most of the Pens hate Rinaldo.  I tend to try and watch a lot of PIT v PHI games as a lot of them are crazy, but I'll be honest in saying that I wasn't a big fan of last night's game.  It was crazy and intense, but there was a lot of dirtiness and thuggery, which I'm not a fan of.  I'd much prefer a real intense, physical game, but clean.

 

The games I've seen between these 2, Philly does come off as thugs and just trying to goon it up, but I don't really see them play against a lot of other opponents.....wonder if they play like that all the time.  It is in their history, but I'd be willing to bet that it only comes out against PIT these days.  Again, other than Rinaldo, who I assume is an idiot 100% of the time.

 

Was ist Bob McKenzie ? Rinaldo is in the same ballpark as Carcillo, Cooke and Torres...

 

back to topic if they think their job is to entertain well they've done a marvelous job yesterday that game was entertaining as hell if more games were like that, the NHL would have a great "product". The only better game in recent years has been that famous Pens - Isles on 11 - 2 - 11 game. Well the Flyers were playing like a team that has nothing to lose against their hatred enemy I mean whats the worst outcome ? They lose the game and get closer to McEichel did they go overboard ? Rinaldo of course did but the Flyers didn't even call up Rosehill so it was hardly thuggery in my mind.

 

According to their fans the Flayers aren't playing like that most of the time so their must be something that really gets them going against the Pens and as a fan it's entertaining as hell to watch god I hope they'll meet in the playoffs.

I love watching that rivalry that's hockey should be: pure hatred, fights, bone crushing hits, crowd going wild and coaches getting fired up. Farnham landed a serious right on that guy. But man Rinaldos hit was dirty

 

That being said I think other rivalries sadly have died down a lot obviously Detroit - Chicago used to be good but it lacks that level of animosity even Bruins - Habs aren't close. So by today standards I think its fair to assume that this is the best rivalry in the game and I would love seeing both meeting in the playoffs but man Flyers need to get on a serious streak if they want to make it.
